Art Club is back!

Miniatures have a rich and complicated history within the arts, gradually moving from an art form of necessity to one of collectibles, keepsakes, and memorabilia. Today, artists of all kind continue to create artwork at intimate scales through ACEO’s. Formally known as Art Cards, Editions and Originals, an ACEO is a work of art no larger than 2.5 x 3.5 inches, the size of a standard trading card or poker card. This format allows for an enormous range of experimentation and allows for a consistent format for collectors, creators, and curators.

Under the guidance of two talented teachers, young artists of all skill-levels can draw, paint, collage, and create their very own collection of Art Cards--perfect for trading and growing their own archive of artistic inspiration.

Each week a new aspect of Art Cards will be explored such as how to make inspiration cards to prevent creative block, using mirrored symmetry to make poker cards, or how to combine a range of materials into a single cohesive work of art.

Age

This class is for teens, ages 13-17.

Class Size

With two teachers and two classrooms, we are able to offer spots for up to 16 students each week. We've got 12 semester passes available--these are a great deal where you get nine classes for the price of five. We'll also open up four drop-in spots each week.

We take your health and safety seriously
  • All of our teachers and staff members are fully vaccinated and practice social distancing daily.
  • Our classrooms are disinfected between classes, and we require that masks are worn by everyone while inside the shop.
  • If you forget your mask, don't worry, we are happy to provide one to you.
Re-Scheduling your class to ensure Covid-19 Safety:

These are difficult times, and we don't want anyone who has developed symptoms of Covid-19 to put others at risk. We implore you to stay home if you feel that you may have contracted Covid. As such, we are waiving our normal cancellation policy described below.

If you need to stay home during one or more of your scheduled classes, we will make sure that you are offered options for make-up classes, no matter how short notice. Make-up classes are subject to availability, but we'll find something for you to enjoy once you have tested negative and are ready to return to class.

PLEASE NOTE: Art Club Semester Passes already include four free clubs, so for semester pass-holders, make-up sessions are not offered on an individual basis.


Katy Lipscom and Tyler Fisher

Katy Lipscomb is an author, illustrator, and designer whose watercolor creatures have sprung, soared, and shuffled their way across the globe. Seen in TIME Magazine, heard on NPR news, and viewed millions of times on her social media accounts, Katy’s works combine artful skills with opulent imagery to generate unforgettably vibrant masterpieces.

Whether formed from handmade paper, forged from steel, or drawn from memories, Tyler Fisher’s visual studies highlight the materiality of the many mediums he manipulates in order to craft engaging stories. Using rabbits, hoodies, and crowns as stand-ins for human protagonists, his work often explores serious, tragic, or complicated issues in approachable, playful, and humorous ways to provoke meaningful conversation and contemplation.
